Some program ideas
During my musical life, I have been interested, at different times, by all kinds of music, which means that I play practically anything. I do like mixed programs !
However, here are some examples of more specialized programs, which I like to suggest presently :
… of course, mostly Baroque, but I do have a special repertoire of little-known Romantic and post-Romantic music, which brings some variety and makes a nice change.
In the fall of 2020, I have transcribed the book of Gregorio Strozzi (1615-1687), containing capricci, ricercari, toccatas and dances, for a recording to be made in Spring 2021 for the Italian Swiss radio station on a historic instrument in the Ticino region. Strozzi’s music is very original and often unexpected.
Of course, I also like the 19th-century repertoire inspired by the opera, including pieces by Verdi transcribed during his lifetime by various composers.
The 1870 organ by Eberhard Friedrich Walcker of the Collegiate Church in Neuchâtel is presently under restoration and will soon be re-inaugurated. Thinking of this instrument, I have revived the works by Brahms and Schumann, which I particularly love, but there are also the others : Liszt, Mendelssohn and even Karg-Elert.
